I was in Pendleton for the Round Up (their biggest event of the year). The Wildhorse is in the process of expanding and just opened up a new 10 floor tower. However, I stayed in their older "courtyard" rooms which were more like a motel 6 two story building. On the plus side the rooms were very clean and everything was in working order. But they "up" their price for the eventto $115 a night. The hallways are in need of a refurbishing. Also the end of the hall door to the outside was propped open one night so no security. The front desk staff was very helpful and the motel is attached to a casino which is very nice and recently enlarged. They say they have the loosest slot machines of the NW and I won twice on a basic 3 reel machine so I was happy. The other downside was there was only one place to get liquor at the casino in the Sports Bar which had HORRIBLE service (will write a separate review). They did provide complementary shuttle service to the downtown area to the events and they also have an RV park attached. But they are still working on the grounds and I woke both mornings to heavy duty construction equipment outside my door. The hotel is on the outskirts of town, I suppose on Indian land, so you would need a car to get to the downtown area or any local restaurants. The hotel was adequate for its purpose.
